"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Eureka, Poe's testament, the synthesis of his analytic ideas, offers itself as a treatise on nothing less than cosmology. Having begun as a scientific lecture, it winds up as an apocalyptic revelation.... It may be read as a rationalistic counterstatement to the metaphysics of Transcendentalism, or as a pioneering experiment in the embryonic genre of science fiction.... 'Eureka!' is his heart-cry. 'I have found it!' he breathlessly seems to announce."

From the Back Cover

In this remarkable prose-poem, master storyteller Edgar Allen Poe (1809-1849) builds on known scientific truths to propound a universe governed by the immutable laws of attraction and repulsion, i.e., expansion and a return to unity. The irascible, vindicative God of the Old Testament and the Deists' Master Clockmaker are routed by Poe's pantheistic World Spirit who, through the force of expansion, is diffused throughout his creation. Moreover, we human beings are all part of this universal spirit and each of us is his own god. The end result of our being is not eternal torment but a return to the primal unity.
